Dear Parents/Carers,

Please find attached a copy of your child’s log in for Developing Experts. This is an online Science platform the children can use at home to enhance their Scientific understanding. I decided to implement this as a response to feedback from parents, carers and children last year in which it was very clear that the development of home school links in Science were desired.

This website contains a range of lessons, which can be carried out at home, as well as videos, quizzes and word searches. It is designed to accompany the Science learning your child takes part in at school and is directly linked to the National Curriculum for the year group your child is in. It is not designed as a replacement for Science lessons in school but will enhance and embed their classroom learning.

Science participation and engagement has shown a significant rise within school over the past year despite the obstacles created by Covid19 and I would love this to continue. Therefore, usage and achievements in Developing Experts will be celebrated throughout each term in assemblies for those children who are taking part at home.

I hope that this goes some way to adding to our Science journey as we continue to move the subject forward at Monkton both in school and at home.

If you or your child have any questions relating to Developing Experts, please refer them to your child’s class teacher or myself and I will be happy to help.

Yours Sincerely,

Mr Bircham
Science Coordinator.
